Needless to say, the "oooohhhhh, yeeaaaahhh" was in the air...

In their first go-round at ART BASEL, the heads at NIKE, in association with the NADA art fair and ANP QUARTERLY magazine, hit a hipster homerun last Friday nite with their 1970s retro running-themed "RE-RUN" exhibition and party at the Paris Theater in South Beach. Featuring a maze-like buildout of vintage and amazingly politically incorrect promo materials, graphics, and archival footwear alongside new imagery from artists SCOTT CAMPBELL, TRACY NAKAYAMA, DAN MONICK, ANDREW JEFFREY WRIGHT, KIME BUZZELLI, STEVEN HARRINGTON, KEITH SCHARWATH, JESSE SPEARS, E-ROCK, MIKE PARE, JO RATCLIFF, and ALEXIS ROSS, the gig went off like a well-oiled art machine despite the capacity crowd of mostly L.E.S. hipsters and a queue running round the block for the better part of the nite. Live performances by art rockers GANG GANG DANCE, SOILED MATTRESS AND THE SPRINGS, WHITE WILLIAMS, CAR CLUTCH, and DJ FREE SIMON were on tap to keep the jaded tastemakers on their feet. HAVE A LOOK:
